Dress And Grooming   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. The Board expects students to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothes that are suitable for the school activities in which they participate. Students have the right to make individual choices from a wide range of clothing and grooming styles, but they must not present a health or safety hazard or a distraction which would interfere with the educational process.

(cf. 4119.22 - Dress and Grooming (staff))

(cf. 5145.2 - Freedom of Speech/Expression)

When gangs constitute a danger to students, the Superintendent or designee may restrict student dress and groom as necessary to comply with Board policy related to gang activity.

(cf. 5136 - Gangs)

Students and parents/guardians shall be informed about the school dress code at the beginning of the year and when revised. A student who violates the dress code shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.
